Missoula College of The University of Montana will offer free college preparation non-credit classes for qualified veterans through the Montana Veterans Upward Bound program during October and November. The courses are designed to help veterans brush up on basic skills in small, supportive groups.
Courses offered include college success, computers, math and writing. An orientation and graduation each with free refreshments will be offered, and students don’t need to be enrolled in Missoula College or UM to attend courses. Classes begin Oct. 1 and run through Nov. 13.
“The advantage of taking these courses prior to starting college is veterans feel more at ease taking classes with fellow veterans who understand and feel the same about getting back to school,” said Mary Opitz, coordinator of the Veterans Upward Bound program at Missoula College.
